On Sunday, we had a special invitation to go to a church service in Azle to help welcome a little boy named Logan home from Detroit, where he underwent a right hemispherectomy. (Just like Jessie). Logan and his mom, Mary, go to The Abby Church in Azle, and we were welcomed and felt blessed to be there.

Logan, had a stroke when he was only 2 weeks old, and has been living with constant seizures since then. After surgery, he is now seizure free.

We had quite a representation from the Hemispherectomy Foundation. Kristi, myself, Caren Jennings, and Laura Rasnick. In addition, we had our kids in attendance.

It was such a special day, as we had two miracle kids together to worship and thank God for the blessings that He has bestowed upon our families. It was touching to hear Mary and her friends as they explained their journey and how similar it was to ours and Jessie's. Everyone was very thankful for what the Hemispherectomy Foundation had done for them, and we were thankful to be a part of Logan and Mary's life.

Carn and Laura are going to help the church with fund raising ideas for Mary and Logan to help with the mountain of doctors bills that they encountered in their hemispherectomy journey to Detroit this summer.

This is Mary Sylva, with Kristi and I.
